With our technology, we can bring summer school into anyone's busy summer schedule.
Ojai, CA (Vocus) April 1, 2010
Laurel Springs School, the accredited, college preparatory private school offering distance learning for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, announces its high school summer school program.
Instead of asking the student to plan their time around a rigid class schedule, the Laurel Springs online program brings materials to the student. Students can take a class anywhere and anytime they have an Internet connection.
“Summer school at Laurel Springs gives students the opportunity to make up a required class or get a jump start on the next school year,” said Laurel Springs School founder Marilyn Mosley Gordanier, M.Ed., “With our technology, we can bring summer school into anyone's busy summer schedule."
Laurel Springs School offers a wide variety of college preparatory, honors and advanced placement courses in grades 9-12, in core subjects and electives. The summer school fee structure is all inclusive, covering all necessary materials and instruction and charging $325 per 4 ½ week class.
Courses are structured in 18 lessons over 4 1/2 weeks, and can start anytime after May 1. Teachers work with students on a one-to-one basis, offering an individualized guided course of study.
“I think it’s a really good program,” said Laurel Springs student Glenn Cook, who also attends Helen Hunt Jackson School, in Idyllwild. “For me it’s nice not having to go to a junior college for classes that I can’t take at my school. I’m taking physics and a Spanish class through Laurel Springs.”
Cook is taking advantage of Laurel Spring School's accelerated program while Brooke Bauersfeld is focused on their credit recovery program.
“I took a geometry course, a second semester geometry course and then an entire algebra II course,” said Bauersfeld, a senior who attends Notre Dame High School in Thousand Oaks, CA. “I had a very positive experience with Laurel Springs, very positive. I used both of my classes to complete my high school requirements. It was specifically good for me because I had problems in the regular classroom as it took a while for concepts to sink in with me. With Laurel Springs you can take your time with things and you take the tests on your own time. It’s also really great because I’m an actress and if I have 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there I can do it then, on my own time. Everything was laid out in the book and there were no surprises. If I needed extra time on something I could take it. If I had any trouble I could just ask the teachers.”
The Laurel Springs staff is fully credentialed, with advanced degrees and extensive classroom experience. The school is certified by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and the National Honor Society (NHS), and recognized by accredited colleges and major universities including the University of California system. The school was one of the first fully-accredited schools to offer the convenience of online courses in 1994.
